Looking up requires the observer to be at some distance from the mountain to see it in its entirety. It gives a point of reference for anywhere you are in the locality it’s distinctive shape can be seen. Looking down from the top of mount Tinbeerwah after a delightful walk through the Aussie bush you can see a full 360 degree panoramic view of the surrounding countryside, getting a new understanding of the system and river system on which I live.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist
I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.
I h’observe too much blue in the first one – what’s with your blue kick? – I don’t remember you being an fx photog. ? Enough with the whingeing: your pic.s are great, Irene! – the way that hill sticks out is wonderful, for one doesn’t often see a little mountain all on its own …

You’re here??? I wonder where …? Somewhere in the eastern suburbs is my guess.
No. Lower North Shore. Super weekend.
Just across the bridge!
I’m surprised that it’s so lush there. Because you’re at the end of your summer, I would think it would look drier. Beautiful views.
We would normally get the most rain in summer with lots of tropical storms and rain from cyclones but this year very little. The tropical vegetation always makes it look lush here although we have had a very dry summer so far.
